Currently, the help center reads like this:
Identification questions are currently on-topic for this site with the exception of commercials, music videos and questions consisting only of an image for detail. Please try to show effort and give as much detail as possible:
I think this is a bit confusing and not entirely true to the state of the site. The ID questions that are truly on-topic are:
- tv shows
- tv show episodes
I propose that we update the text to something like:
Identification questions are currently on-topic for this site in regards to identifying actors, movies, tv shows, and specific episodes of tv shows. ID questions must be as descriptive as possible and cannot consist of only an image. Important details to include are:
Also, the current wording for closing as Off-Topic: Identification reads as:
Identification questions must contain sufficient detail to meet the site's quality standards and should not be about a commercial, music video or consist only of an image. For help writing a good identification question, see: Identify-This-X Questions.
I think we should reword this to something like:
Identification questions must contain sufficient detail to meet the site's quality standards. They should be about identifying an actor, movie, TV show, or a specific episode of a TV show and should not consist only of an image. For help writing a good identification question, see: Identify-This-X Questions.
I'm open to tweaking the wording, but I think as it stands the Help Center doesn't quite reflect reality.
